We return to Crested Butte, Colorado for another wonderful week of skiing with John's cousin, Joanne, and her husband, Paul.

(above left) Carol and Joanne pause for a picture. (above) John at the top of the Black Eagle run that he maintains should really be a black diamond run. Cousin Joanne has led him down it in prior years and in conditions, to use technical skier jargon, were always yucky. This year, John got smart and made Joanne take the run by herself before he'd go. It turned out out to be great. (above right) However, several days later, in a solo run, Joanne did wipe out in the moguls and earned a ride down the mountain on the back of a snowmobile.
